Intermedia has appointed Jarmila Yu as director of marketing EMEA as part of its continued channel push.

It follows the recent appointment of Aidan Simister as director of sales EMEA, who has built a dedicated channel team in the Reading UK office of Intermedia, a leading one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business applications.

Yu brings more than 20 years’ international marketing experience to the role, having driven the agenda in roles at the likes of IBM and Kaspersky Lab.

With the Intermedia Partner Pledge at its core, Intermedia is launching a triple-pronged charge on the channel in line with her appointment: 

Intermedia is a one-stop shop for cloud business applications. Its Office in the Cloud™ suite integrates the essential IT services that SMBs need to do business, including email, file sync and share, single sign-on, security, mobility, archiving and more. Office in the Cloud goes beyond unified communications to encompass a much wider breadth of fundamental IT services, all delivered by a single provider.

Aidan Simister says: “It’s great to have Jarmila on board. Jarmila came to join us because she saw Intermedia’s potential to continue its growth and success. She shares our vision of growing through the channel, which we believe is the best route to market, providing a strong connection with the end users and delivering excellent cloud services.”

Jarmila Yu adds: “There’s a real buzz about Intermedia and what it can offer both the end user and the channel, which is why I was so keen to join. It’s an organisation capable of helping businesses be brilliant – allowing them to focus on their core day-to-day activities by taking away the layers of complications traditional IT has brought to many over the years.

“Change is happening at such a fast speed. SMB and Enterprise each have their traditional and new challenges and opportunities. The vendor landscape is changing, and the channel itself needs to evolve. Intermedia has what the end customer and the channel needs.’'

Think of Office in the Cloud as your “Business Cloud Platform.” Intermedia’s services are integrated into its HostPilot® Control Panel. There’s just one login, one password, one bill and one source of support, which creates significant cross-service efficiencies for both users and IT administrators. Intermedia offers enterprise-grade security, a 99.999% service level agreement and 24/7 phone support with typical hold times of less than 60 seconds.

Intermedia serves over 60,000 businesses and has more than 5,000 active partners, including resellers,VARs, MSPs, telcos and cable companies. Intermedia has over 600 employees worldwide who manage ten datacenters to power its Office in the Cloud—and who work relentlessly to assure customers and partners
